In my previous post, I related each of the 12 Houses in Astrology with 12 Major Arcana Cards, so that left me with 10 Major Arcana cards that I feel suit perfectly the 10 Astros that we have to take into consideration for interpreting or reading an Astral Chart.
So let's see...
First, the Sun, represented by Apollo is the God of prophecy and it s associated with the ego, a sense of purpose, and vitality. So the Major Arcana Card that represents it is the World because the sun is what creates life and makes all the planets revolve around it.
The Moon, represented by Selene, the Goddess of the Moon, is associated with emotions, intuitions & motherly instincts. And the High Priestess represents it, as this card represents wisdom, intuition, emotions, and our divine feminine side, which are also associated with the moon.
Mercury, represented by Hermes, the God of messengers, is associated with communication, wit, and cleverness. And the Judgement card is the best for it, as this card carries the trumpet that announces and communicates the new age and time to wake up and come out from our shells.
Venus, represented by Aphrodite, the goddess of love, romance, and lust, is associated with beauty, fertility, and happiness. It's equal to the Lovers because it is the card of love and it represents Venus in all its qualities and the effect that it has over your life.
Mars, represented by Ares, the God of War, is associated with the struggles and battles that you are going to have to endure during your lifetime. So the Chariot is the perfect card for it since this card represents war, battles, and struggles, so it has the same meaning as Mars.
Jupiter, represented by Zeus, the God of Thunder and also known as the planet benefactor, is associated with all the blessings that come into our life & by showing helping us in our path. So the Moon is the card for it, as it represents the path of your life and all the help you can and guidance you can get from the Heavens to overcome your obstacles.
Saturn, represented by Cronus, the God of time and father of Jupiter, is associated with Karma, Justice, Ambition & Pessimism. So Justice is the card for it because this card represents being objective and fair in your judgments, so it suits the karmic Saturn.
Uranus, represented by Ouranos, the God of the sky, this planet is associated with originality, eccentricity, and discovering your true self. And the card for it is the Hermit because only by isolating yourself is you get to know and embrace who you really are.
Neptune, represented by Poseidon, the God of the Sea, it is associated with our dreams, illusions, and the vagueness of the self. So the Star is the perfect Major Arcana card for it, as it also represents illusion & the water representation in it relates to Neptune’s core meaning.
And Pluto, represented by Hades, the God of the Underworld, is associated with death, chaos, destruction, eventualities, and everything unseen. So the Tower embraces the meaning of this planet, as this is the card of troubles that forces us to grow and mature (even unwilling) like Pluto.
And with that, the 22 cards of the Major Arcana can be related to the 12 Houses and the 10 Astros that can dictate or influence your life based on Astrology.
